    I have been working at MarketWatch full-time

    Pros

    It's a great mix of young and experienced people. Though editors can be demanding, they're also very encouraging. Place of opportunity for those who want to pursue enterprise stories, even if there is the pressure to produce clicks.

    Cons

    Get a Bloomberg Terminal. Though I suspect its a policy of Dow Jones, having one would be great. It is a great repository of data. And as business reporters, people should have at least access to one.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to give advice in such a cut throat business. Engage with readers more, and see what they want as opposed to counting how many views we get. Engagement beats popularity any day.
